A lot of remixers have expressed difficulty jumping back into an expansive wardrobe after participating in the 30 for 30 challenge.  When you're limited to the same 4 pairs of shoes for a month and all of a sudden the floodgates of closetry (word I made up) are opened to you, it's slightly overwhelming.

That doesn't mean I wasn't ready for it.  Really, really ready.  Also really ready to clean the heck out of my closet.  I filled a garbage bag and still don't feel done.  It was definitely an eye-opening experience for me...realizing that less really can me more.  It isn't just something jerks say to be ironic.  Who knew?

If I were to attempt this again, it would be during warmer months (longer days) and I would be bolder with my selections.  And more shoes.  Definitely more shoes.

You did such a great job with the challenge. I was impressed. I do not have the courage to do it myself! LOL

Staci said...

love it!

Come to my house and plan out 30 outfits, pretty please? I'm too lazy to think this creatively and stylishly. You rock.

Way to bring it with this challenge! So many great looks!

Congrats on finishing the 30 for 30challenge! I agree with you, I also learned that less is more closet wise but I am not having a hard time wearing non-30for30 items. And your pup is so cute!

Way to go! And, while I appreciate the fact that you were ready to wear more than a few pairs of shoes, when the shoes are as cute as yours (hello, those yellowies? L.O.V.E.), I'd be happy living in them indefinitely. Okay, maybe an exaggeration. But you know what I mean. Love the pops of color throughout.
p.s. I added you to my blog-roll...I hope that's okay?

Isn't it a relief to be done? I think I liked outfit #5 and the last one the best. Both of them are chic and adorable. - Katy

You look great in all of your outfits and those yellow shoes are a genius idea - wish I had included some bright shoes.

I know what you mean about too much choice in your closet - it was almost scary. I did a quick wardrobe clean-out just after and have a 2nd, more thorough one planned for today. It's a great incentive when you know you don't need so much stuff.

Well done, Jill! I think 1, 3, 13 and 21 are my faves.
